BSI has worked closely with the Construction Products Association and industry representatives in the creation of BSI Identify. BSI is the only registration agency authorised to provide construction product IDs, we create and issue the unique BSI UPIN (Universal Persistent Identification Number).

BSI Identify

BSI Identify is a new service operated by BSI to provide unambiguous identification for products and the long-term persistent storage of associated product information that can be accessed using a digital ID called a UPIN (Unique Persistent Identification Number).

The service provides a consistent approach to identification of construction products that supports the industry as it continues to digitize and addresses critical safety issues.

The Construction Products Association (CPA) has played a major role and supported the initiative from its conception. As a Founding Industry Partner, the CPA continues to contribute its expertise and advice on the strategic direction of the service as well as facilitating the voice of manufacturers to be heard.

Peter Caplehorn Chief Executive, Construction Products Association said: “The Construction Products Association are delighted to be involved in BSI Identify to enable the control, maintenance and dissemination of up-to-date product information through the design, build and maintain lifecycle”.
